Ri-Bhoi police today recovered a decomposed body from a jungle at 20th Mile, which falls under Nongpoh police station.
The headman of 20th Mile village had informed police that a dead body had been found in the jungle there near the Umrabit stream.
Due to the highly decomposed state of the body, identification proved to be challenging for the villagers. Consequently, an on-site inquest and post-mortem examination were conducted.
No visible injuries were found on the dead body and the magistrate instructed that the body be taken to Nongpoh for a full autopsy.
